Algeoirds, March 3.—The conference on Moroccan reforms took a most important step today by deciding on the Initiative of Great Britain to proceed to the im mediate discussion of the police question. After Sir Arthur Nicholson, chief of the British delegation, had submitted this proposition the Marquis Visconti Vene soui, head of the Italian mission, actively seconded It, eloquently appealing for con ciliation and asking for the abandonment of the absolute anti unbending stand taken by France and Germany. His words were listened to with deference. The voting showed that Germany had with her Austria and Morocco, while eight representative powers supported Sir Ar thur Nicholson. Belgium and Sweden an nounced that they would abide by the decision of the majority. One of the dele gates then proposed that the police ques tion be referred to a special committee which should prepare a project and sub mit it to the conference, but this propo sition received a negative vote. The result of the vote on Sir Arthur's proposal has caused something of a sen sation as it means that the delicate Franco-German contest over the policing of Morrocco has been forced to a decisive issue In which both sides will be com pelled to show their hand. Moreover, the vote gave the first indication of the j strength of the two sides. While this was not as decisive as the question was upon the merits of the police, yet it disclosed that Austria and Morocco were the only countries voting with Germany. It Is understood France will not present a police project to the conference, and t»hat, therefore, she will be consulted simply only on the question of principle Involved. It Is expected that the discussion of the question of the police will be begun Mon day. Concerning a dispatch to a Tendon newspaper from Washington In effect that Emperor William contemplated a dramat ic stroke by announcing to the world that France and Germany had agreed, the delegates declare that they do not pos sess Information warranting such a state ment. However, many of them admit that the character of the German Emperor makes such a step possible. Herr von Radowitz, head of the German delegation, while denying the statement, expressed a hopeful view of a settlement, of the controversy. Count Cassini, the chief Russian plenipotentiary, says that he pins 'his faith on the events of the last hour when both sides are face to face with the tremendous responsibility of the failure of the conference. On tho whole the trend of opinion among the delegates is that chances for amicable | settlement are growing. JAMES O’BRIEN IS AT POINT OF DEATH A GENERAL FIGHT IS ALLEGED TO HAVE OCCURRED IN THE ROLL ING MILL DISTRICT—TWO MEN LOCKED UP. Janies O'Brien lies at St. Vincent's hos- I pital with a fractured skull and a stab wound In the small of the back, as a re- ( suit of a general fight alleged to hava i occurred last night in the rolling mill section of the city. Fred Nicholas and Frank Fay were arrested by Policemet Larue and Baker on charges of assault with Intent to murder as a further result of the same fight. Policeman Larue staled last night that from what he could learn the men had a fight during the afternoon, and another last night when they met a second time. O’Brien was taken to St. Vincent’s hos pital and the other two men, neither of whom Is said to bear a scratch or mark of the conflict, were locked up in the city jail. At the hospital at 3 o'clock this morn ing It was reported that O’Brien s injuries were very serious, and that he was^ ex pected to die as 4 result. Fay and Nich olas will be held by the police without the benefit of ball until the outcome of O'Brien's Injuries is determined. Another Assault Charged. Joe Williams was arrested last night on complaint of an aged white man named Robert Hines, on a charge of assault with Intent to murder. Hines was very badly beaten with brass knuckles, and alleged to the police that Williams had committed the assault. Williams' face was very bady bruised, several teeth were knocked out, and he was treated by a physician before he was locked up on a charge of disorderly conduct. This charge was made more* to have him in court Monday morning than for any other reason. ETOWAH REPUBLICANS Meet and Put Out Full Ticket for County Officer*.

ROCKEFELLER SUES 10 RECOVER mi\ SAYS HE HAS BEEN "SCALPED” BY THE SUICIDE OF PRIOR, WHO HELD PROFITS IN REPUBLIC STOCK. New York, MaTch J.—Frank Rockefeller, brother of John D. Rockefeller, began & suit In the supreme court today against various individuals and brokerage firms In this city and Cleveland. Mr. Rockefel ler, who lives in Ohio, is seeking to re cover *500,000. The suit is the outcome of stock transactions with Leland VV. Prior, who committed suicide In Cleveland on January 9. Mr. Prior's brokerage firm, Denison, Prior & Co., suspended operations after Prior killed himself, and Is now In the hands of a receiver. It appears from Mr. Rockefeller's complaint that he is anxious to hold the correspondents of Denison, Prior & Co. responsible for money lost through dealing with Prior. The New York correspondents were C. I. Hudson & Co. of 32 Wall street, and E. E. Randolph & Co., 116 Broadway. Both these firms are named as defendants. At the time Mr. Prior committed suicide Mr. Rockefeller was dealing heavily In the stock of Republic Iron and Steel He had on deposit with the Prior firm and its auxiliaries large blocks of the stock, but It was In the name of Prior, as it had not been paid for, he says, and sim ply was held for him. The stock cer tificates had been Issued In Prior's name. As soon as he learned of Prior's suicide, the day after Prior killed himself In the Hollenden hotel In Cleveland. Mr. Rocke-* feller said he telegraphed to the Hud son and Randolph firms and also the brokerage firm of T. A. Mclntwre & Co. Of 71 Broadway to close out all tils deals, and all the stock they held In trust for him. He now declares that they carried out his Instructions and realized large Bums by the sale, In fact much more than had been advanced on this stock In the course of the purchase of the same. Mr. Rockefeller sues to recover the money realized over and above what was due to the brokers. The receiver of the Prior firm. Thomas Bushness, is also named as a defendant In Mr. Rockefeller’s suit. He also named other persons w*ho he says have laid claim to some of the money due him. Still Resist Making Inventories.
